Well lets let the Okie in Iowa have the soapbox.  I agree we should do all
we can to stop any activity that is illegal and do our best to stop innocent
people from getting stung.  I am sad to report that the fake McCoys have hit
here with force.  This weekend we have Walt Johnstons Antique Show in Vets,
Auditorium, Doll show that is a big thing anymore in the tourism building on
the Iowa State Fairground and the monthly flea market also on the Fair
grounds so we had lots of the right kind of people in town and milling about
to make us have a bumper day at our little Collectomania store.  We have 227
dealer and there is probably 50-70 that have at least one piece of McCoy in
our booth at all times.  One of our dealers that is new and learning the
difference between junk and junque went shopping at the fleamarket before
comming to work at Coll. this morning.  He came in with steam comming out
his ears over a man set up at the fair grounds selling McCoys that weren't
the real thing.  He said he had first seen the guy when he had put out just
a cat with a ball of string that was a stringholder and it had McCoy on the
bottom and the man said he had bought out this old estate !!!!!!!!!  When he
came back by he had a table full of McCoy but our dealer was smart enough to
know that some of the colors were off and talked to another of our dealers
set up and when they both confronted the new comer he admitted that he
hadn't gotten them from an estate but had bought them from someone that had
said they were being made with the original molds.  This is the first I have
heard of them here in Des Moines.   Are you sure lynching is illegal???????
